Burst of Joy

@jacko2323 recently made the observation during the NFL Draft that Commissioner Roger Goddell was greeting the draft picks "like families hug their returning veterans."

This reminded me of the famous photo of the same situation.

Did anyone know about the backstory to the photo? Heart breaking.

Doesn't the Wiki article make it clear?

Once in a while a photographer is in just the right place at the right time. This is one of those times.

Yes, I meant did anyone know the backstory BEFORE reading the article.

I knew the picture showed a former POW being welcomed by his family upon his return. I did not know about the breakup of his marriage.
